Wonderful Family Time     
Cleanliness     Location     
Privacy     Value     
Stayed for one week in August with our three children, their spouses and our grandchildren. All had a grand time. Location was excellent, lots to do, cottage was clean and roomy enough. Our only negative is that we found the living area and kitchen pretty dark at night. The ceiling fan retrofitted with lights on a dimmer would make a huge difference. Overall, we were very pleased and will likely do it again next year (if you'll have us!).

Ample room for big family     
Cleanliness     Location

The weather this summer has been very unpredictable. And unfortunately our week started out cool and wet. But the cottage was welcoming with the warmth from the burning fire upon our arrival. The games room provided entertainment when the weather didn't cooperate. Eagle lake was wonderful for kayaking and canoeing. We explored the lake every day. The children enjoyed splashing in the shallow area. They loved feeding the ducks and the chipmunk. And to everyone's delight a doe and her two fawns strolled across the lawn one morning. Roasting marshmallows around the camp fire was our evening ritual. One negative, was that the lawn was very wet. Not sure if that was due to the wet summer weather or underground springs. We had to be careful when walking across the lawn. The cottage had ample room to accommodate our group of seven adults and three children. The kitchen had the necessities to prepare our meals. The bbq was a good size and very clean. May I suggest that VRBO clean out the cupboard beneath the kitchen sink. There is way to many products and it is very cluttered. We enjoyed our holiday and hope others will relax and enjoy the charm of Sam's Lake House.

An ideal winter getaway

It was my fourth time at Sam's Lake House! My friends and I really enjoy the spacious and warm atmosphere. The proximity to the ski hill is a real bonus. The hot tub is always a big hit as well. This year, we even shovelled a mini skating rink on the lake! Perhaps we'll visit again in the summer.

We spent a ski weekend at Sam's and loved it so much we'll be back next year. We walked to the ski hill to ski and then walked to Sir Sam's Inn for the spa. We've never rented a cottage with such an excellent location before!!

Great Fall Getaway     
Cleanliness     Location     
Privacy     Value     
This was perfect for a fall getaway. Lots of room, high ceilings, great woodstove, loads of physical games like indoor shuttleboard, half-size billiards, etc, etc. Might have been great to have a few group games (pictionary and the like) but of course these could all be brought. Kitted out with everything else you'd need, lifejackets, cooking gear, a great kitchen, the space is beautiful, warm, lots of wood, a great big main room, a large games room downstairs, it could accommodate a large group with different interests. The hot tub was great! All in all a great retreat. We'd definitely go back, summer or winter.

The most amazing cottage we've ever rented!     
Cleanliness     Location     
Privacy     Value     
We absolutely loved Sam's Lake House! It offers so much more than what we saw on the web site. The cottage was immaculate when we arrived. There was a neat stack of kindling and wood left beside the woodstove for us to use. Fresh clean dish towels, there were even flowers in a vase on the kitchen table. Very thoughful! The location was private yet close to everything we needed from groceries, to spa, to fine dining. There is even mountain biking with rentals just a short walk from the cottage. A great way to entertain the family during cooler days. The beach was small but large enough for our children to have fun with their buckets and shovels. The lake bottom was sand and firm so the kids really enjoyed playing in the lake. The cottage offered a surprising amount of privacy from neighbours. We loved this cottage and will definitely come back next summer. Our search for the perfect cottage rental is over!!!

This fantastic cottage was ideal for our family of eight with wonderful activities for young and old.

What a heavenly location: large wide treed lot, amazing sunsets, and the beautiful cries of loons echoing across the glorious lake. Previously reluctant swimmers found themselves in the water several times a day, and even at night.The dock was perfect for diving, and the shallow sandy bottom was perfect for wading. Inside, the spacious cottage was ideal for our family of eight. Beautifully furnished, with a games room downstairs, comfortable bedrooms, and lots of places for quiet relaxation, Sam's Lake House will always evoke fond memories of a slice of paradise. We'll be back!

Great spot to kick-back, relax and enjoy the great outdoors. The view of the lake/trees during the day and the stars at night were truly memorable. The kids loved the paddle boat, canoe and kayaks! The fire was cozy, despite a rainy Saturday. This is a wonderful place to stay. We had fantastic support from the owner and All Season Cottage Rentals Inc. We will definitely be renting again... Perhaps a winter snowmobiling getaway!

My boyfriend and I along with my 3 sisters and spouses stayed at Sam's Lake House. We went there to celebrate New Years Eve. It was absolutely perfect. The place was clean, very spacious, private enough and close to everything. We walked to the ski hill and looked around, visited Sam's Inn for a drink. The weather wasn't the greatest on New Years Day but the place offered enough space and things to do (like shuffleboard, bean bags) and especially the Hot Tub that there was something always to do. I would highly recommend Sam's Lake House and would definitely come back.

We wanted to come up for some snowmobiling and found the Lake House on the internet - it was just perfect...we had access to the trails so we could go in many directions, came home to a nice fire and a soak in the hot tub !! We were very comfortable, slept well, enjoyed some family dinners and just felt at home....highly recommended for a winter retreat!

Offers a true cottage experience with the added benefit of everything close by!

Our group very much enjoyed Sam’s Lake House on Family Day Long Weekend. It is a true cottage experience! Close to anything you could possibly want and need to do. There is an LCBO on the drive in which is very convenient. Sir Sam’s is just across the street which offers so much itself. Plenty of fire wood and games to keep one entertained. The outdoor fire pit made for an amazing time and when it got too cold you could relax in the hot tub. Plenty of space however the basement was not used to its fullest potential as the upstairs was very cozy. A great winter experience at a cottage plus we actually caught something when we went ice fishing!

We walked to the patio doors onto the deck and all went "WOW" !!!     
Cleanliness     Location

A pretty spectacular view in the day time and to watch the sunset at night. (That was my favourite time after dinner on the deck) Your so close to the lake when your standing in the cottage looking out the patio doors it looks like your actually in the water, your so close to the waters edge. We loved having the grass area and the fire pit and the sandy beach, the unbelievably comfortable reclining lounge chairs on the deck, and the ones in the living room too. Would want to fall asleep everytime I sat in one of them!!! My 2 daughters and I were up there all week then my Husband came up and our other 2 daughters, son in-law and 2 grandchildren were there for 3 days it was wonderful that we were all together and were all comfortable. My parents came up for the last 2 days and thought it was such a beautiful spot. They had a cottage on Little Kennisis for 15 years and really miss being up in Haliburton. Two of my daughters and son in-law went to Sir Sams to mountain bike and had a great time. We all used the kayaks and paddle boat everyday. Went to the nice little island across the lake with the sandy beach that goes for about 20 feet out!!!! It was a nice holiday...thanks to All Seasons for everything !

Stayed during May 2-4 weekend of 2012. Place was very clean and well supplied. Games room was great, although the weather was so good we didn't need it!! Nice view, quiet lake even on May 2-4. Great fireworks over the resort. Easy lake to motor boat in. Clean, clear water with wonderful fishing. Nice bottom for swimming. If you have little ones you can pull out rock bass after rock bass!! Owner supplied lots of information about the area in the binder. Really cool loft bedroom that kids would love. Can't think of anything else a cottage would need!

We loved what we saw on the website, loved it even more in person. From the moment our group walked in the door, we were so pleased. The cottage is very large, lots of room for all, beds were very comfortable and the shuffle board was a great after hours event. The view was amazing, we could bike to the runs across the street, have a refreshing swim afterward and paddle if we still had some energy. We loved every moment of our long weekend, we will be back many, many times. Thanks to all the Sir Sam's people for letting us know about this rental, we can't say enough about how friendly everyone is in the area. Outstanding weekend. I would love to keep this place a secret so we have it to ourselves, that would be selfish though. Thanks again, amazing.

PERFECT COTTAGE! PERFECT LAKE! PERFECT WEATHER!     
Cleanliness     Location

Our group of 7 friends loved Sam's Lake House, everything about it! We were biking, so all of us looked forward each day to returning to take a dip in the lake, afterwards popping into the hot-tub, and going back for another dip in the lake. Being mid-September the lake offered invigorating swimming, after entering the chilly water inch by inch! We loved the layout of the cottage, and took advantage of the spacious gathering areas inside and out, all the while appreciative of the kitchen equipment, dinnerware etc since we prepared all of our meals while there. Except for the final day's breakfast, that is, when we chose to go to Sir Sam's dining room for a treat, and a treat it was! We couldn't have asked for a better experience for our annual bike trip than staying in this lovely location.

This was our fifth stay. Every time we have been made so welcome by the Bishop family at Sam's Lake House and at Sir's Sam's Ski Area. We love it. The wood fire was lit and the place toasty when we arrived. The hot tub was ready for action. The cottage is immaculately clean, comfortable, inviting, and has everything you need for for 7 to 9 guests. You don't need to bring anything for the kitchen except good food and drink. We look forward to returning next year! Cheers! The Roger family

A great stay at the lake.

Sam's Lake House is in an ideal setting. Lots to do if you never leave the cottage, but lots to do nearby if you want an excursion. Enough room that our family of 8 (6 adults, 2 six-year olds)were never tripping over each other. A beautiful deck with a view of the lake, a good BBQ, a nice glass topped table big enough to seat eight. Games room - shuffle board, poker table. Eagle Lake is great for boating or swimming off the dock. In early July the water was the perfect temperature for swimming. Nice fire pit near the water. Ideal spot to enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

We had the most amazing week at Sam's Lake House. The cottage was so warm and inviting....and clean, clean, clean!!! We enjoyed every minute of our stay. We loved sitting on the deck overlooking the lake during the day...and relaxing in the hot tub in the evenings. We're hoping to go back again next year.
